A Green Prescription (GRx) is written information for a patient to be more active as part of their health management. GRx does not replace medication but can be used in conjunction with pharmaceuticals to maximise health benefits. The 2008 GP survey found that 100% of New Zealand GPs had heard of GRx and 86% had issued them. Follow up support by phone, group or face to face is an essential part of GRx to assist patients to build physical activity into their day.
